Pacific food producers ready for Australian food show

Fine Food Australia Expo

Eight producers from five Pacific nations are preparing to showcase their premium products and unique Pacific flavours in Australia this September.

They are on their way to Fine Food Australia is the southern hemisphere’s leading trade exhibition for the food, hospitality, and retail industries. The trade show, which attracts over 1000 exhibitors, features new and innovative products from around the world, plus live demonstrations, masterclasses and industry recognised competitions. 

As part of Pacific Trade Invest (PTI) Australia’s ‘Pacific Showcase’ stand, Vanuatu’s Tanna Coffee, Fiji’s Green Gold Kava and Pacific Premium, Solomon Islands’ NiuLife, SolTuna and Solomons Gold, Samoa’s Living Koko and Niue’s Niue Vanilla will be featured at the show.

PTI Australia’s General Manager of Exports, Jeremy Grennell said that with over 25,000 expected visitors, the trade show provides great opportunities for Pacific businesses to increase their brand awareness and forge direct buyer connections in the Australian market.

“These products illustrate the diversity of premium food and beverage products coming out of the Pacific. The Fine Food Australia trade show presents a great opportunity for our Pacific exporters to engage with buyers in a one-on-one environment, allowing them to really share the story behind their products and gain further access into international markets.”

Clive Carroll, Founder and Managing Director of Solomons Gold, says his team are very much looking forward to showcasing their organic Solomon Island grown cacao products at the annual event.

“For over a decade our cacao social enterprise has been assisting Solomon Islands cacao growers to produce one of the world’s purest forms of single origin cacao whilst also improving the community’s standard of living. It is these communities that remain at the very heart of our passion for chocolate.

“We are excited to present our retail and foodservice vegan chocolate and cacao products at Fine Foods and to shine a spotlight on what we believe to be some of the finest cacao in the world, sourced from our own Pacific region.”

This will be the ninth year Pacific Trade Invest Australia has facilitated the Pacific Showcase at the Fine Food Australia trade exhibition.
